Formula Student Hungary 2016 | Györ

14 members of our team participated Formula Studnet Hungary 2016 in Györ with Vector 02. There were 44 teams, 30 in category Combustion engines and our rivals were really strong.

Thursday - we passed through the scrutineering at the first go! On Friday we passed tilt test, noise test and even brake test, also at the first go!! On Saturday evening we went out of paddock with great feel of satisfaction. Why? Our time from acceleration was 4,254 s, top speed 92,4 km/h, our best time from skid pad was 5,318 s and time from autocross wasa 41,294 s.
Sunday was the day of Endurance. We placed at 13th place in combustion.

Rivals here were muchs stronger than before and we are happy of our results. It also motivated us to building new monopost Vector 03. Our aim was to get at least 380 points and we got 426,9 points. Our final place is 14th in combustion.

FSAE Italy 2016 | Riccardo Paletti Circuit

Our team participated the Formula SAE Italy & Formula Electric Italy 2016 (July 22nd - 25th, 2016). That was for the first time we participated the races in abroad and it was really exhausting. Long way to Italy and back, many competitiors and hot weather during whole reces.

There were 74 teams, Class 1C (combustion) 41 teams, 1E (electric) 22 teams, Class 3 (newbies) 11 teams.

We participated both - static and dynamic disciplines this year and we surprised even ourselves. We passed all test for the first time. Noise Test, Brake Test even Tilt Test. Only Scrutineering we passed for the 2nd time. But only small things were wrong. For example sliding attenuator or increase sesitivity of brake light switch. We were able to fix it in paddock.

First of all the results of dynamics disciplines were really surprised - we had one of the heaviest car in competition (275 kg). Our aim was finish the race and get at least 380 points. We got 482,944 points and we finished at 11th place.
